Your pain may be hidden
Buried in the depths of your soul
And it seems forbidden
To speak of this hole

No light seems to enter
Darkness is all that's found
Your heart is the center
Of all that keeps you bound

Falling into the crevice
All hope seems to disappear
You feel like a blemish
In the lives of those who are dear

Look up from the heartache
Put down your shame
For although your faith may shake
We will hold your pain

We will be there to carry you
When your legs have given way
We will be there to love you
To calm your mind's fray

    This is absolutely wonderful. I love this and relate to it extremely well. My sentiments exactly, if I could have ever figured out how to articulate it as well as you did. Wonderful work! Thank you...

    This is so beautiful, and a clear reminder that we have love all around us, even if we don't see it in front of us, sometimes it's in our peripherals, from people we don't expect it from, or even those we may not know.
